The Trophy on my Mantel

There's something exciting and wonderful sitting on my mantel today. It's been there since Wednesday, but I'm just now able to talk about it without becoming all verklempt. It's (drumroll please) a shiny crisp copy of "Dragon Slippers" by up and coming author Jessica Day George. Yes, that's right! It's my book, in all its hardcovered, slip-jacketed glory. Hot off the presses and gorgeous to behold. Is there anything better in the world?

Oh, my goodness! How long have we talked about this moment? Seventh grade? Maybe Eightth? I'm so happy for you! It has to feel like giving birth. Just that moment when you finally hold your baby in your arms for the first time. Except a book doesn't cry and keep you up all night! Congrats!

Ahh- I just checked out the events page. I am not going to Canada, but King's English sounds great! I'll watch for the date.
